Outfit Post

Yesterday I had to go into town and, as I didn't have time to set my hair the night before, I decided to wear my hair in plaits and built the outfit around that.

Outfit details: ribbon - ?; vintage nurse's uniform - Rewind Recycled Fashions; ankle socks - Big W; shoes - KMart.

I don't know if I've ever posted about inspiration for an outfit before, but this was the inspiration for yesterday. Obviously, she is wearing trousers and a vest, and I was wearing a dress but I picked up on the details of plaits, ankle socks and lace-up shoes. As an aside, this picture is from a booklet of knitting patterns that I bought a while back. If anyone is interested, I was thinking of scanning them all and uploading them somewhere, perhaps as a .pdf.

Also, I need to think of a more interesting title than just 'Outfit post'...any suggestions?

Andi B. Goode


  1. I love Herman's Hermits too!! I'm with you - I can appreciate most music, from classical to jazz to swing, but my favorite time for music is definitely from the mid 50s to the early 60s, though I can't say no to Bing Crosby, the Andrews Sisters, or the Mills Brothers. It's what my dad has always listened to and we share the same taste in music. :)

    You look so cute here!!

  2. I dig the pigtails! Maybe instead of "outfit post" you can write a description of what you're wearing?

  3. Really a vintage nurses uniform? wow, i like it. I picked my uniform up on Monday, shirt and pants or skirt, a little different to back then. Although they had uniforms there for the Royal Adelaide Hospital and they actually have a choice of a dress in that style!
    Your hair looks cute like that.


  4. What a cute look Andi, and you pull it off so well. I espeically like the red canvas lace ups and the hair too. Wish I could do my hair in braids but it's not quite long enough yet. How about 'Andi's attire' as a title for your fashion posts?

  5. I love it!!

    How about
